GeoTools 16.4 Released

The GeoTools team is pleased to announce the release of GeoTools 16.4:
This release is also available from our maven repository.

This release is made in conjunction with GeoServer 2.10.4.

GeoTools 16.4 is a maintenance release focused on bug fixes. While this release is suitable for production systems we recommend planning your upgrade to GeoTools 17.

Features and Improvements

  • xsd-wcs uses an up-to-date WCS 2.0 Range Extension schema
  • LabelCache Exceptions should not use System.out but report to RenderListener


  • ImageMosaic returns an image with full mosaic footprint even when a single granule was selected
  • Cannot set up a heterogeneous CRS mosaic if granules are all in local CRSs
  • GeoPackage tile order inverted along y-axis
  • Band selection optimization in GridCoverageRenderer fails for the "paint" code path
  • ReadResolutionCalculator under-estimates the reading resolution in case one axis is stretched a lot more than the other
  • ImageWorker mosaic operation can return results with the wrong ROI
  • Stretched shield placement does not account for descenders in label
And more! For more information please see the release notes (16.4 | 16.3 16.2 | 16.1 | 16.0 | 16-RC1 | M0 | beta).
